    Re: Best way to add Stabilizer

    I use a Tide Bra Wash bag. I place it in the mouth of the skimmer with one section of filter hose to ensure it doesn't suck into the basket. It's gone very quickly. The bag has a fine mesh. ... ageCount=2

    The pump should run until the CYA is dissolved if you put it in the skimmer in a bag or sock. It can run normal run times if you hang it in front of a return, but it's still best if it runs until it's dissolved.
